Labour education builds solidarity and knowledge. Labour education teaches the skills unions need to represent their members and defend their rights using proven methods that allow adults of all backgrounds to learn.
If your union wants to train the next generation of local activists or expand the skills that today’s leaders and activists already have, the SFL/CLC Spring School is here to help your union succeed.
Unions know they need to reconnect with a new generation of working people. They can do this by being better bargainers and better advocates for their members at work, as well as better political activists for everyone who works to support themselves and their families.
The courses offered by the Spring School can help your union do all of this and more!
We are excited to host the 2018 Annual Spring School at the beautiful Elk Ridge Resort and Conference Centre Waskesiu Saskatchewan.
